Red wine. Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets has two-thirds whole-bunch fruit (it was two-thirds the previous vintage). The stem addition enhanced the complexity of the aromatics with upfront blackberry and raspberry fruit laced with sous bois, tobacco and slate-like aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of energy and tension. I love the balance here, the spiciness that begins on the back palate and ends up at the front, chaperoned by a lovely saltiness that leaves you wanting more. What a superb Volnay this is. It comes highly recommended." — 92-94 Points, Neal Martin, Wine Advocate #234 (Dec. 2017)
